Introduction to the Paradigm Veo
6 Whether you're curious about the basics or an experienced user looking for tips,you'll find it all in this interactive module.
The MiniMed Paradigm Veo 5series insulin pump is the lightest pump available from Medtronic Diabetes yet! Including battery it weighs just 95 grams. The MiniMed Paradigm Veo 7series insulin pump including battery is just 102 grams.
How do I determine which size insulin pump is right for me?
Please note: Discuss this decision with your healthcare professional since it relates to your insulin use.
We have designed the 7series insulin pump for patients who use more insulin or anticipate using more insulin - specifically, more than 50 units daily. The 7series insulin pump can hold up to 300 units of insulin; it can also use either of the 2 MiniMed Paradigm reservoirs -- the 1.76 ml (MMT-326A) or the 3.0 ml reservoir (MMT-332A). Therefore, if you are anticipating life changes such as pregnancy or adolescence, you may appreciate the flexibility
to upsize or downsize your reservoir. If you currently use more than 50 units daily, you may want to consider the MiniMed Paradigm Veo 754 for its larger reservoir capacity.
The 5series insulin pump can accommodate our 1.76 ml reservoir, and it holds up to 176 units of insulin. It is ideal for people who require less than 50 units of insulin per day. In addition, it is the best choice for people who want the maximum discretion offered by the smaller, lighter-weight member of the Paradigm insulin pump family (the MiniMed Paradigm Veo 554).
Medtronic are the only Company on the market offering this flexibility of different model sizes to suit the different requirements patients may have.
What are the basal rate increments on the MiniMed Paradigm® Veo™ insulin pump?
The MiniMed Paradigm Veo can be programmed in 0.025 units/hr basal increments for basal rates of less than 1 unit/hr and in increments of 0.05 units/hr for basal rates of 1 unit/hr or more. This matches all patients needs from early age to adulthood.
